About

I’m a Brighton-based fiction writer. My work has been featured in Brittle StarNeon Magazine and Mechanics Institute Review Online, and others.

In 2014 I was a winner of Escalator / Inspires, Writers’ Centre Norwich’s national writing competition. Following that, I spent two months as a writer in residence at Toji Cultural Foundation, South Korea. In 2017 I was shortlisted for the London Short Story Prize, and selected for Spread the Word’s PLATFORM artist development scheme. In 2018 I won the Desperate Literature prize for short fiction.

By day, I’m a project manager specialising in literature programmes and arts communications. In the past I’ve worked for British Council Literature and Writers’ Centre Norwich. I currently work as Digital Content Editor at Modern Poetry in Translation.
